NATHANIEL SILVER has been a PEACE MAKER in our family. He is training me with the skills to train my two dogs, both are 3 years old. Nathaniel is very knowledgeable of both human and dog psychology. Working with older dogs is more of a challenge than puppies. I rescued them both. We have begun with the essentials of potty training and the proper commands for extinction of behaviors (potty training of adult dogs), and how to use the leash and your voice to create proper behaviors (OFF, SIT, etc.). I need to gain control of their behaviors. I have only been working at this for six weeks and expect even more improvement with Nathaniel's guidance. I will post our progress periodically.Feb 4, 2021Verified

I’ve been working with Nathaniel for a few weeks now and I see the improvement with my dog Charley already. I appreciate Nathaniel’s attentiveness and patience as I know we have a long road ahead of us but I am more than confident in the process. Before I contacted Silver Dog Training, I was at my wits end and didn’t know how to help my dog live a happier life, as I only had adopted him a few months in and I knew my doggy has had a rough life so far, now I feel Charley’s aggressions have subsided immensely and there’s more mutual understanding between my doggy and I. He’s taught me commands that have been so helpful when we go for our walks and in every day situations. I now know what kind of leader I have to be for my Charley Boy , thank you so much Nathaniel!!Feb 4, 2021Verified

We haven’t met too many times yet, as we’re still in the beginning stages of training, but what I’ve seen so far has been good. My dog is over a year old and she’s awfully stubborn, but she was the most responsive she’s ever been during our last meeting. Nathaniel was nice to work with and he made it easy to understand why my dog has been acting out. I look forward to further sessions and I am excited to see how my dog’s behavior will change.Jan 23, 2021Verified

After meeting with Nathaniel Silver I felt very comfortable with him teaching me to train my dog Roxie. She is an eight months old red nose pitbull who is full of energy and anxiety. It has been one week and Roxie It’s starting to come down with the anxiety. But she is still a puppy LOL.Jan 12, 2021Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?*Pricing* is done three different ways. 1) Puppy and potty training. In home. 2) Behavioral modification. In home. 3) Puppy training(for an early start and high level of socialization) or behavioral modification(usually for unruly adolescent or aggressive dogs). board and train program. Followed by in home classes also. We will find the best pricing for you when discussing what kind of training your dog needs. My results are fast and very long lasting and meant for lifetime behavior. I encourage owners contact my previous clients on my review boards both here or on Facebook to inquire about their experiences and satisfaction level. This truly is my passion. I am an animal lover first and foremost . If I am not with them I'm reading about them or watching documentaries most of the time. My husky shepherd of 16 years just passed away this march 13th 2020 and devastated me. This motivated me to come to Florida where I could be close to the everglades and help families become closer and with their new family member and teach their dog independent control.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?The first thing I do is sit with the family and do a brief interview of what the families daily routine and activities are. This allows me to diagnose the root of core issues and where to start antecedent arrangement.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have attended animal behavior college which I am re enrolled in again to update my knowledge. Things change since 2008 and I always like to learn more in general. I attended Hudson Valley college in Troy New York in the environmental science degree program. I originally wanted to work in the everglades in my early 20's. I have now worked with canines for almost 20 years.
